Notice of an EGM to be held at 6:45pm for 7pm on Wednesday 26 August in the track side seating area.
Please note that the AGM for next season has been postponed until further notice, when we might know when league play can safely re-start and when the 2019-2020 season has been completed, in some shape or form.

In the meantime an EGM will be held at 6:45pm for 7:00pm on Wednesday 26 August in the covered track side seating area to give us plenty of room for social distancing. (The start time has been put back as we only have two proposals for consideration and we only have use of the facility until 8pm.)

The EGM is being held to decide how we are going to conclude the 2019-20 season.

The agenda for the EGM will be as follows:-
1. Roll Call
2. Consideration of any forthcoming Proposals for:-
a. To reduce playing weeks from 39 to 26 to complete the season or to end the season after week 24 in some way.
b. If we continue to week 26, when to start week 25 onwards.
c. Do we play the two weeks straight off or play half the league each week over 4 weeks, which will depend on Spectrum's protocol for league play.
d. How to deal with the lost team.
e. League Risk Assessment.
3. Proposals (For the above)
4. Date of the AGM.
5. Any Other Business
6. Reminders

Proposals for consideration at the EGM, which must be seconded, must be put in writing to the league secretary at least two weeks before the EGM (12 August) please.

20 point Match Play Scoring System
At the recent AGM the League opted to change from the previous 8 point system to the new 20 point Match Play scoring system.

Each player can gain 2 points for each handicap game won, up to a maximum of 6 points.

Two players can win up to 12 points.

2 points can be won for each team handicap game plus 2 bonus points for the overall handicap total pinfall, giving a maximum of 8 points for the overall handicap totals.

The maximum individual and team points is therefore 20 points per match.

There will be a sample 20 point match result on the reverse of the Week 1 score sheets to assist you. There is also a sample 20 point score sheet in the "Downloads" section of the web site.
